What Does Celeb Culture Teach Us About Female Beauty?

Celebrities make beauty look effortless. Many famous women whose beauty we admire and style we try to emulate have teams of professionals whose job it is to make sure that every aspect of their appearance is on point. While we should all learn to accentuate our own positives, and appreciate our own beauty, what are some lessons that can be learned from the realms of music, fashion and media?
Let’s take a closer look.

#1. Unique Personality Is Everything

Many of the models in popular magazines conform to a fairly similar look, but let's be honest; ultimately, we don’t remember any of them! The girls that stand out are the ones brave enough to let their individuality shine through. The girl with the gap tooth in the lipstick ad, or the girl with the big untamed hair in the shampoo commercial; those are the girls we remember!
Have you always wanted to try a different style of clothing, or a different hairstyle, but you were too afraid of what people might think? Embrace that desire and try something new. Build up your confidence by making small changes to your weekend wardrobe, or try a different hairstyle for a special event. Always wear your hair straight? Try rocking curly hair! Always wear you hair curly? Grab that flat iron, or try straight extensions or a glueless lace wig. Breaking away from your norm can go a long way. I've always wondered what I'd look like with dreadlocks, but I was concerned about the look in my professional atmosphere. I finally mustered up the courage to try the new goddess locs trend, and it's been liberating to do something different and express another side of my personality.

Be like those celebrities that stand out and have the courage to express your individuality.

#2. Body Confidence

Today's female celebrities step out in the most body baring fashions, and wear it confidently. Of course, many of them have teams to help them eat right and stay fit; but most real women come in different shapes and sizes. Not to mention the business of life causes many of us to neglect our bodies and physical fitness. Through my own journey of weight gain after giving birth to my son, I've learned that it's important to first be healthy, next to appreciate and take care of your body by eating right and exercising, third to embrace your positives instead of constantly comparing yourself to others you believe to be thinner, and finally setting realistic goals to changing things you don't like. Very few of us have the DNA to be a size 0, but celebrities step out in confidence because they have done the work behind the scenes to achieve the body they desire. Making a commitment to treating your body right through wise food choices, and physical activity can work wonders for your confidence. You cannot beat genetics, but these ideas on how to deal with cellulite may jump start your commitment to meet your fitness goals. .

#3. Everyone Love a Winning Smile

Finding the right fashion and makeup choices is great, but a great smile should also be a part of your beauty routine. Good oral hygiene provides a good foundation for health and body image. In many cases, celebrities gain new smiles through the use of veneers and other treatments. Professional dental work is probably more affordable than you think, so there’s no need to rule it out before doing your research.
For most of us, whiteness is the main aim, While celebrities have the luxury of having their teeth digitally enhanced by Photoshop editors, there are a few things besides whitening kits that can brighten your smile. Try brushing with a paste of baking soda and water for a budget friendly way of removing tooth stains. This past summer, my husband and I tried another new teeth whitening trend. For fourteen days we did oil swishing, and implemented brushing with active charcoal. Not only did this whiten our teeth, but it also reduced tooth sensitivity and obliterated bad breath. It added a little time onto our brushing routine, but a great smile is a great confidence booster, and definitely worth the effort.
